What's Up?

Q: Why doesn't the Walgreens store have electric shopping carts for the disabled? If they did, I think more of the Rim country's disabled population would shop there, I know I would.

A: "For the most part, none of our stores have electric shopping carts due to liability concerns -- other shoppers being run into," said Carol Hively, corporate spokeswoman for Walgreens. "However, the manager of the Payson store has ordered a wheelchair with shopping basket attachment for use by the disabled. He also said his staff frequently helps the disabled with their shopping."

Hively said she did not know how long it would take for the new unit to arrive, but until then, shoppers who need assistance only have to ask the Walgreens staff for help and it will be provided.
